A personal and historical journey into the photo albums and shoeboxes of the Slocan Valley 1800s to early 1940s

by Rita Moir

The history of the Slocan Valley is synonymous with the people who have travelled through it, enjoyed its abundant resources and built their homes and communities there. Acclaimed Canadian author Rita Moir, who has made her home in the valley since 1975, is one of those people.

In her new book The Third Crop, Moir embarks on a personal journey through old photographs and memorabilia of the Slocan Valley found in private albums, dusty shoeboxes and community archives. Along the way, from a perspective that only a long-time local can provide, Moir skilfully and passionately recounts the stories, industry, joys and tragedies of an era that was pivotal in forming the human character and landscape of the Slocan Valley as it is today.

The Third Crop serves a visual feast to lovers of the province’s history, with more than 160 historic photographs beautifully juxtaposed with contemporary images of the valley. Moir’s insights into the history of a place she deeply loves and respects, and her reflections on her experiences living there, are a significant contribution to understanding this vibrant part of British Columbia.
